I had to take the same decision…
In reply to leegoodwin, Oct 11, 2012

…as a nature photographer. I wanted a FF camera that complement my 1DIV for landscapes. In my opinion, 5D3 is only a need if you:

-do low light or night landscapes

-work on harsh environments

-don´t trust on a single memory card

-finally plan to use the camera for other purposes.

5D3 improves almost every aspect over 5D2, but it´s a lot of money to pay. If you do mainly landscapes with base ISO with the assumptions I told before, you can save up the money and buy a luminous and sharp lens, and you won´t miss anything. 5D2 vs 6D? I would wait to see the IQ tests and decide.

But if you need (I mean,  you really need) any of the things listed before, you will have to do a sincere inside  job and decide.
